Float home communities have been a part of the life on the coast for well over 100 years. Fishermen (and women), loggers, fish farmers etc. This is not the group of float homes causing my concern....

I was in Squirrel Cove a couple of weeks ago and there are four float homes still there. There are several large concentrations of float homes like Port Harvey. It is always best to have a live...

I just found out that to post anything on Blue Water Cruising would cost $210 to join. Perhaps a current member of blue water cruising would like to get involved. If enough concerned boaters who...

Float Homes in British Columbia Bays

As I cruise up and down the coast of British Columbia, I am noticing more and more floathomes being set up permanently in bay, after bay, after bay. Apparently this is perfectly legal. I have...

Oh, you had to go and get personal, didn't you. I want our country to be uniquely different. Not the same. Get it ? There is way too much policing out on the water. It's getting absurd. This is...

RCMP Boardings

The seemingly endless boardings are a relatively new tactic in our lives in British Columbia. I certainly don't want to give the opinion the the Mounties I have encountered on the water are gruff or...

newbie

Thanks, I am enjoying this one too. I would like to ad one story to this thread. In 1981, I was on my sailboat near Gibsons, B.C. tied to a public dock located on Keats Island. I heard a large...

Twenty five years ago, I was in Friday Harbour and watched several Coast Guard vessels check virtually every vessel that left the harbour one day. I was shocked, quite frankly. I feel one should...

R.C.M.P. boardings in British Columbia

In the last few years, the RCMP in B.C. have started an aggressive policy of boardings and safety inspections. I have seen them go after every boat in sight. They can and will board your boat when...

I know I will get flamed for this but, as marijuana is used as an anti nausea drug in cancer therapy... I can personally attest as to it's effectiveness as a seasick remedy. I'll challenge anyone...

Use of VHF Radios
